About Kaley

This is Kaley’s third year with Camp Fire. She is stoked to return to Sunnyside and continue to connect and deepen her relationships with the amazing youth in the program. Kaley graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in English with a concentration on Creative Writing. Her previous experience working with children includes facilitating after school and summer programs with a local church in her hometown, working at a wilderness skills camp, and mentoring at risk youth in both Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Kaley is an herbalist and is excited to share her love for plants and nature. She aspires to have her own education program to teach children about the benefits of plants and how to connect with the earth. Kaley moved to Portland from Philadelphia three years ago and just can’t get enough of the epic wilderness of the West. In her free time, she enjoys watching anything sci-fi or fantasy, making plant medicine, gazing at the moon, hiking, and playing board games.
